Blindspot Season 3, Episode 2 -- A Ms. H TV Show Review

v1

Like the famous word from The Princess Bride movie, all I can say about Season 3, Episode 2 of Blindspot is "Inconceivable."  Looks like everybody including the enemies had more lines to say in this episode than the supposedly star of the show, Jaimie Alexander.  I wonder how she felt knowing that not only is she being relegated to a housewife with hardly any lines, but her appearances are being scaled down in her show -- slowly but surely.

The writer made sure that everyone had lines, even if they piggybacked off other peoples' lines.  It was obvious to me that he wanted the viewing audience to realize the focus of the show would not be on Jane Doe played by Jaimie Alexander and her mysterious tattoos, but would be focused on everything and anything else -- but her.

In this episode the focus was clearly on her brother, played by Luke Mitchell as Roman.  I must admit it was interesting the way the writer led the audience to believe that somehow her brother was going to take the high road when he had a one to one conversation with another male from a support meeting.  Spoiler Alert:  It was surprising when the interchange of caring conversation took a turn for the worst when the victim put too much trust in drinking what looked to be a regular beverage given to him by Roman -- who is obviously a low-life person.   Well, this devious character had quite a few lines and the whole show seems to be directed around him. This is being done to the dismay of Jaimie Alexander whose main purpose seems to be to explain her questionable outside liasons with her husband/FBI agent.  Instead of apologizing, she should have directed her energy to actively solve and fight crimes as an FBI agent. By the way, during this episode, her husband noticed something different about her.  Can you guess what it was?  Here's to the effect his exact question to her --  "Did you do something different with your hair?"  Really? This line was not necessary to move the story along.  By the way, she did have a lack-luster fight scene where she kicked, slapped and pushed an enemy around while the director made sure her partner's fighting skills were shown in a much more admirable, heroic light.

All in all, the story itself is becoming jagged pieces of jigsaw puzzles, where you really can't trust anyone; however, it is a far cry from being a show with a strong, female lead.  I'm anxious to see where the next episode will leave Jaimie Alexander, maybe resigning and staying home ready to apologize to her husband about the meal not being made while he was busy solving and fighting crimes.  Maybe the show won't go to this extreame -- but it looks to be headed in that direction.

Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars with 5 stars being the highest, I rate Blindspot Season 3, Episode 2, two stars.
